When we were young Mom and Dad took us to visit cousin Artie, Gail, Aunt Peg and Uncle Art on many Christmases. Even as a little boy Artie was always fun on those holidays and other family occasions. I will miss them all.

Artie & Gail grew up on West Main St and attended Brayton school. I fondly remember them both. Kind and loving people. May you both rest in peace among the Angels.

Sail on Artie - You were an inspiration to me at my first job at Adams Suoer Market. Never saw anyone work harder and take so much pride in your white shirt and tie. It was always great to see you again years later were we local music was great. Peace to you my friend.

I was blessed to have Artie as a cousin and remember his love for music and his talent as an air guitarist. I also got to enjoy his love for dancing at parties at Canal St when I I worked for NBMH. These memories will always hold a special place in my heart.

A treasured childhood memory is Cousin Artie always asking if I wanted to play records. He loved music, dancing, and playing along on his air guitar. He livened every family event with his exuberance! Rest in Peace, Cousin Artie.

For the older generation of "Rockin Rollers" who remember "Artie": He was the "KING" of the air guitar !! Be well in heaven, Cousin Arthur.

I remember the days at Canal Street Center. Rest in peace Art.

Artie was awesome! He was a huge fan of so many local bands. If no one else got on the danc floor, we knew Artie would be up there playing air guitar to every song. And he knew all the words too! Artie was Paraffin's most dedicated fan. May you rest in peace with all the other "Rock Stars" in Heaven! And thank you for your energy and dedication.
